Howard, not sure if its 64bit, how would i check? Fruitbat, Hi, the link is for USB Live2, i may end up just getting one of those..

my w7 says 32bit on screen but if you click on start and then right click on computer it will tell you if 32 or 64 bit. I have both one on each pc and a lot of my stuff will not work with the 64 bit.

If he is off-duty just ask.

One of the best forums I have come across, apart from this one of course.
